Steve Ballmer Biography and Wiki
Steve Ballmer was born in Detroit, Michigan on March 24, 1956. He was raised in an upscale suburb of Farmington Hills and attended a private college preparatory school in Beverly Hills, Michigan called the Detroit Country Day School.
Ballmer graduated from Harvard University magna cum laude with a BA in mathematics and economics. While at Harvard, Ballmer managed the school football team and worked for two college newspapers, “The Harvard Crimson newspaper” and “Harvard Advocate.”
As a sophomore, Steve lived right down the hall from future Microsoft founder Bill Gates. His first move into the business world was with Procter & Gamble, where he was an assistant product manager for two years. At P&G he shared an office with Jeffrey R. Immelt, who would eventually go onto become the CEO of General Electric.
Ballmer joined Microsoft in 1980 as the 30th employee. Bill Gates hired him to be a Business Manager and offered him a compensation package that included an annual salary of $50,000 plus an 8% ownership stake in the company. The company incorporated one year later, in 1981, and Ballmer’s stock skyrocketed in value.
Today Ballmer is well-known for his flamboyant stage appearances at company events, as well as his full time energetic and exuberant behavior.
